The Rap And Hip-Hop Music Trends Of 2017 You Need to Keep In Mind

Written by Jaron Lewis

Let’s be real, hip hop has long been the trendsetting genre. When it happens in rap culture, the world hears it, they see it and they embrace it. Hip hop has been around for over 4 decades and the fashion, bling, and phrases have become part of the mainstream.

Rap has been fused with rock, a la Linkin Park, and even been combined with country to great effect when Nelly and Tim McGraw joined forces. Whether you are a rapper, or a producer, there are plenty of new music trends that you need to keep in mind.

We saw several new music genres in 2016. There was Dark Bass, which combines Trip Hop, Industrial and Bass music. Progressive Heavy Electro Rock, which fuses EDM with Metal and Rock. Air Pop that mingles Pop, Ambient, and Trip Hop. Glitch Soulazz which is a unique blend of Jazz, Blues, and Electronic Music. Country Dance, which is exactly what it sounds like. Mumble rap, which led by the new age rap artists such as Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert and Desiigner.

What does 2017 hold for the music world? More specifically Rap and Hip Hop music. Expect more beef, more collaborating, and heavier beats and instrumentals.

This Years Trends

2016 has been a hell of a year, politically and beyond, and that is set to weave its way into the world of rap and hip hop. With the Black Lives Matter movement gaining momentum and the general public becoming more aware of what Americans are facing on a daily basis, it is only a matter of time before that is expressed in the rap and hip hop world.

Hip hop has long sought to redefine the cultural norms and the role it played in the 90’s is set to repeat itself next year. It was an inevitable outcome, considering the issues that have been discussed over the course of 2016.

So, What Are The Coming Trends In Music Industry?

When it comes to the world of hip hop, rappers have long had an influence in society.  It should be taken seriously when discussing the progression of culture in America. It is a historically significant factor in society, it represents a reflection of woes and expresses the sentiments from communities that are traditionally marginalized and oppressed.

It has long been a vehicle for social awareness and commentary, and it has been an avenue for public discourse, too. While hip hop in the 90’s marked a significant movement reflecting the discontented social climate of the time.

You can be sure that social media will become an integral aspect, as it is the advancement of social media that has made these topics national talking points. History has a way of repeating itself, and as it does, so will hip hop take the lead in expressing the frustrations of entire communities across the nation.
